There is so much I love about this work that I find it hard to begin. So many elements flow together to create this awesome work.

I love the lighting--the reflection on the table is a great hint at how clean the whole establishment is. The gun laid casually on the counter, the smoking and the general outfit imply that this is a hardened fighter who should not be messed with. Then my eyes fall on the Hello Kitty cup, the tea bag and the jelly beans and suddenly the character is much more complex than originally thought. A sense of humour comes into the picture through the way he's scratched out the "no" and done the tally marks. I don't know what the ones on his uniform/armour are for but it's a good way to tie things together. Finally, the way his head is cocked at the same angle as the "69" sign on the table made me laugh. He could be propositioning someone but that is not necessarily the case.

Overall the elements flow together to create a great work that makes me want to know more about the character. The two things that do not seem to flow as well are: the white squares behind him and his elbow on the table. The squares seem just a touch too bright. His elbow isn't quite on the table and that makes it a little odd for the viewer. Yes, there are people who don't put their elbows on the table tops but if he's taking a break, expending the extra energy to balance his elbow doesn't quite make sense. But other than that, the whole work is stunning and humourous with some very serious implications.

Very well done and an instant favourite. Thank you very much for sharing this.
